That's what I feel like today, that I have nothing to show you.  I actually have some small progress on the Quaker Bag scissors pocket.

I want to finish this off today.  I have to work up the gumption to start the other large panel.  Or I could start the book cover.  We'll see. . .

Then I tried to finish off one side of Monica's apron.

 Giulia has a new half doll design coming out at the Nashville market.  Why do I love half dolls?  I don't know, but I do.  I really like the new one.

We are lucky not to be the ones getting slammed with snow this weekend.  It's great that the roads are clear here and I am not scared to drive.

My FitBit is starting to fall apart.  The band is coming apart.  So I ordered a new one.
I had a question about the tacks that I ordered which happened to come in the mail yesterday.

I got them from Dharma Trading Company.  I first used these kind of tacks when I was doing some silk painting.  The prongs aren't very long so they have a tendency to pop off if the linen is thick.
DH says it seems like it is Friday every 15 minutes.  Yep, I agree.  That's what happens when you get old.
